Me and my friends were planning a trip since long. After many discussions and voting, we decided to visit Pondicherry.
So we booked our early morning flights to Chennai early in advance and decided to check the conveyance to Pondicherry once we reach Chennai.
After reaching Chennai, we check for taxis and private cabs, which we found a little on the expensive side. The taxi stands inside the airport were asking for Rs.5000 one side. So we decided to go to CMBT bus stand since a colleague of mine told me that there are AC buses which runs daily.
Upon reaching the bus stand (Ola - Rs. 220-250), we were luckily enough to get the bus without have to wait. PRTC blue colour low floor AC bus runs every 1hour to Pondicherry. Ticket price Rs.280 per person. Duration - 3hrs. Bought some snacks to eat and hoppers on the bus.
Upon reaching Pondicherry, we checked in into our hotel Le Royal Park. Quite decent hotel it was and near to the White town.
Got freshen up and in the evening left for the famous White Town. So White Town or French Colony is altogether different from rest of the city. Neat, clean, all the hubs/cafes/restaurants/pubs are located here only.
So White Town is surrounded by Rock Beach from one side. Must say beautiful place it is to spend time. Had our dinner and we were back into our hotel room.
Dinner - Cafe Xtasi. Amazing pizzas they had. Must try.
Dessert - Creme Affairs
P.S. : you can take autos and can bargain. Or can roam around on bikes / bycicles. Or you can walk around. Also rock beach gets no vehicle zone after 5pm every single day. WOW!
